I firmly believe the inline citation issue has been resolved for this article and the notification should be removed.--Soulparadox 16:08, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
I have commenced inserting more Wiki links, but the process needs to be continued, as the original author only inserted a small number.--Soulparadox 16:19, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Under advantages and disadvantages, I am concerned that low literacy rate in certain demographics may retard the effectiveness of the therapy, but I don't have any citations to add it. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:25, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
I rewrote the History section to reflect the history of the field as opposed to children's bibliotherapy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Petercannon usf (talk • contribs) 23:11, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
I propose that Therapeutic storytelling be merged into Bibliotherapy. The definition of bibliotherapy is an expressive therapy that involves the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing. There seems to be almost no difference between that and the definition in this article storytelling that uses creative metaphors to tell individualized stories that help to address challenging experiences in a child's (or adult's) life, offering possible resolutions and the opportunity for insight and reflection. This article claims that it is another field but does not explain the difference. The sources that talk about therapeutic storytelling seem to be limited to a small group of individuals. A very large majority of the links and references are affiliated to Susan Perrow and these have been added by a couple of WP:SPA accounts. At very best the difference is that the therapeutic story telling is a story written with an individual person's need in mind but the aims and mechanisms are identical to bibliotherapy.
